Kuwa Kubwa is an alternative education collaborative for Black and Brown children. The school began as a two-hour per day education program and was one of Black Sovereign Nation's pilot initiatives. Now, Kuwa Kubwa exists as a full day program and year-round school serving grades Pre-K through 8th.
The Kuwa Kubwa curriculum is developed by Black and Brown scholar-activists, community organizers, and parents who are deeply committed to Black Sovereign Nation's principles of autonomy, self-determination, cooperative economics, and resistance. Those principles shine through in the framework teachers use to develop lesson plans and activities for our students. Our teachers are taught to unload the conditioning and indoctrination they were subjected to in oppressive and predominantly white institutions and, instead, embrace a radical Black pedagogy. Parents are required to take an active role in developing lesson plans for their children, working with teachers to customize the Kuwa Kubwa curriculum to suit their family. Student schedules are flexible and designed to fit the needs of each, individual family enrolled in our program, but usually consist of three 1-on-1 sessions and two collective learning days per week.
Our hope for Kuwa Kubwa is that it will grow alongside Black Sovereign Nation, fulfilling the needs of families who are ready to take steps toward Black autonomy by breaking the chains of white supremacist institutions of education and liberating the hearts and minds of our children.
